Hunters unfamiliar with purple painted posts could face jail time

You may have encountered a series of trees or posts in rural Texas sporting an odd coat of purple paint. Most people have seen it, but few know what it means. The particular shade is named ‘No Hunting Purple’ and it means the same thing as a ‘No Trespassing’ sign. The law has been around for 20 years and was created to give land owners an easier alternative to replacing old signs. The paint must cover at least 8″ vertically and be spaced on trees or posts about 5 feet apart. Watch the video below for more information.
